Sharing From My Heart

A friend is someone who opens doors for you - and if a door has quietly closed, dares to knock. - unknown

Good morning my dear friends! I have something I wish to share with you today. 

I have been doing much heart searching over the last number of months and I have come to a decision. I am cancelling No Place Like Home for a while.

I know this will take some of you by surprise and I'm sorry, but I hope you will understand when I explain why. 

Most of you are not aware of it because I don't like talking about it but I have a few health issues and I have not been feeling well since the beginning of the year. I feel at this time I need to step back for a while with my blogging.

You see, I have been hosting blog parties since January 2010, almost seven years, with very few breaks and I feel I must take one now. Hosting a blog party takes a lot of time and preparation and as you all know, I try to visit every one who links up.

Those of you who have been following my blog and participating in my parties know that I take my obligations as a host very seriously.

But to be honest, at this moment in time, I am exhausted. I haven't mentioned it until now but it has been a tough year.

 I still hope to blog at least once a week but I won't be hosting any more parties for a while. Perhaps after the new year I will feel like partying again. We will see.

I want to thank all of you who have been so faithful in linking up, visiting me and leaving your nice comments. I have loved having you and I still intend to visit you when I am able.

I hope you all know how much you mean to me. You have made my blogging experience a delightful past time and I have learned so much from all of you. You are a very gracious and gifted group of ladies and I am honoured that you have linked up to my parties over the years.

Thank you for your friendship, your understanding, and for visiting today. Take care and may the Lord bless you all! I will be back soon.
